vt100 font


[Apologies to those of you who receive this note in multiple forums]

i've been looking everywhere for this font to be used system wide (/usr/share/font/) on my machine w/ no avail.

if possible, can anyone point me to the right source for this font?


regards,
/virendra

drop it in ~/.fonts and it should be available to all your apps, if you are using defoma to manage your fonts. I can't speak for other setups

I'm not sure if I follow you? Drop what?

I'm looking for vt100 font (*.ttf) since there's no built-in vt100 font unless I've missing something.


Please advice.

you mean vt100.ttf?

If so my brother owns a powerbook. Can I copy vt100.ttf from a specific folder?

please advice.

VT100

VT100 is from way before apple, it is a DEC terminal font. Does anyone know where you can get a full VT100 character set font? I have found some but they don't load on raspbian. I am looking for the full set so that my enigma emulator can do proper boxes in text mode. (how it was done in the old days - and as I am very old it is how I want to do it).

I have on my system a "DEC Terminal" font - fc-match says it's "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi/term14.pcf.gz", owned by the package xorg-fonts-75dpi.
Hth.
